REACH Independent Scientific Expert Pool (RISEP)
HSE acts as the Agency for UK REACH and will use independent experts in the REACH Independent Scientific Expert Pool (RISEP). RISEP will provide the Agency with independent scientific expert advice on the safety and regulation of chemicals and support its scientific opinions.
Membership of RISEP consists of experts in these areas:
- environmental risk assessment
- human health toxicology
- human health exposure and control
- chemistry/regulatory science
- economics/impact assessment
We will publish a list of members, their professional qualifications and declared interests.
